Another Parade, again…

It’s nice to see horses in parades

Malta is a country with many  churches and, of course, each church has a patron saint.  As a result, every week at least one church celebrates the feast of its patron saint.  Here we are in St. Julian’s, celebrating the feast of St. Julian.  This is a great opportunity for tourists to see  many colorful costumes, hear wonderful bands and learn something about the history and costumes of ancient Malta.  Most weeks, Malta  celebrates more than one patron saint so that tourists have many options to travel, not too far, to these “Festas”.  Restaurants and bars on the main streets  set up outside tables for watching the activities while enjoying their food and drink.

Returning ….

Returning, past St. Julian’s

After cruising past the eastern coast of Malta, seeing coves, cliffs and a variety of inlets, we again reach the populated area of St. Julian’s, Sliema and then Valletta and arrive back ‘home’. It was a beautiful cruise.  Well worth spending the day on the Mediterranean.

Finally, my book!

A ride in “old Malta”

Here I am, as a child, over 60 years ago.  We enjoyed these rides taken to visit relatives far from the cities.
